Court of Appeals Decision No. COA 16-80
The Board of Directors at Providence VFD is excited to announce that the Court of Appeals released its decision in this matter on Tuesday April 18, 2017. A link to the decision can be found at; https://appellate.nccourts.org/opinions/?c=2&pdf=34441
As can be seen by the decision, the Court affirmed the Trial Court’s decision denying the Town of Weddington its Motion to Dismiss the allegations made by PVFD. PVFD asserts that the Town of Weddington engaged in fraud in its dealings with the PVFD when it induced PVFD to transfer their property to the Town for promises of a 10 year fire service agreement, only to shortly thereafter, once the Town had the property, cancel the agreement and kick PVFD out the property they had owned since 1984. Moreover, despite the Court not continuing the preliminary injunction that was put in place by the Trial Court, there is a Lis Pendens on the property concerning this litigation and any future purchaser of the property takes the same subject to the outcome of this litigation.
PVFD is looking forward to finally having the facts of this case brought before the public in court in a fair and open trial.
